“Charming, centrally located hotel in a great area”
Reviewed September 10, 2010

The Mision Santa Isabel is within walking distance of everything and just steps away from the start of the main shopping street. Quiet, clean and staffed by helpful front desk personnel (especially Steve and Benito), this very reasonably priced hotel is a bargain. The rooms all front around a central courtyard with a small pool. This is not the US so don't expect a soulless Holiday Inn. Stray a bit from the main tourist areas/streets and eat with the locals. Look for restaurants with only Mexicans eating in them, try the taco stands at night, eat at the fish market (Mary's is wonderful), drink Tecate at Hussongs and enjoy this very friendly little city. The wine route is also well worth a day trip.

the hotel is a beautiful old mission. Beautiful rooms and nice price. Right on the shopping strip. And it's relaxing.

I'm very picky and when I visit Ensenada, I love to stay here. It is very safe, very clean, walking distance to EVERYTHING! Parking has security 24/7. Give the security a tip, he will take special care of you --- NOT THAT YOU NEED CARE in Ensenada. It is a very safe place near the ocean. Love it!

  • Liked — looks like an old hacienda/location/sleep very well, very quiet & clean

I stayed at this place on 4/28/08 for two nights. The place was very quiet and it was very nice. The pool area was clean and relaxing. Actually it was very relaxing even though it is located in the heart of the main area. The front desk was very helpful with directions or recommendations. I would not hesitate to return and an added bonus is the fact that it was only 49.00 a night.

Some of the reviews of the condition of the hotel below might be a little outdated because my stay and obvservation of the hotel is that it was perfectly nice.

Arrived into Ensenada for the first time at night. Drove down the way too touristy strip and ugly touristy hotels. At the end of the main strip was the Mision Santa Isabel, splendid mission building and rooms advertised for $49, similar to the hotels on the strip. The concierge was super friendly. The private off street parking felt very secure and at times even had a guard. My room, 212, had a king sized bed, super clean. The bed & pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom had a cool sink with a floral inlay / paint in mission style and the walls, showers, floors were all beautifully tiled. Certainly chipped in some areas, and it was not super modern, but that was its charm. And it was clean and everything worked well. Hot water was fine, shower everything worked great. The floor was refinished wood floor, perfectly nice. It had a great closet with iron clothes hangers which was really cool. The concierge helped with a lot of travel questions and since I was traveling alone, it was nice. The only con was the dining area--I had the buffet breakfast which was overpriced ($7) for what it was. Could've gotten something cheaper and tastier in town.

ENTHUSIASTICALLY RECOMMENDED!

We seldom stay on weekends, so it is usually very quiet. Ensenada is never a destination for us, but we look forward to staying there whenever we pass through Ensenada. The hotel is central to the marina district where the shops and restaurants are. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The showers have good water pressure and flow. The parking lot is secure. We enjoy talking with the hotel staff who are nice, interesting people. We usually stay there after a long drive and it is our oasis of peace, quiet and relaxation.

We had credit card guaranteed reservations for two rooms and two nights at the Hotel Mission Santa Isabel--we thought...Since we were late in leaving Phoenix, I called and spoke with the manager on Saturday to explain that we were on our way and would be there between 8-9 pm. When we arrived they had no reservations, no rooms and a very dismissive and arrogant person on the desk. He shuffled some papers on the desk and all but ignored us, then glared at us at which point we turned and left the premises. He actually said that even though I had spoken with Juan Carlos personally twice, I had the wrong hotel and it was just a "coincidence" that the hotel manager's names were the same!
The Hotel Cortez saved the day (and night) and were very sympathetic and helpful.
We are building a home in Ensenada and are traveling there frequently and will continue to do so for the next year or so. We will warn others of the problems with Santa Isabel and recommend the Hotel Cortez highly.
